will be because papers like yours do

Because -the correspondents in the
early days of the war frequently com commented

army," the people in thi3 country
have Tjecome thoroughly imbued with
the idea that the French have an un-
disciplined mob in place of a" well dis disciplined

statement, ask any French officer on
duty in this country or read General
Pershing's order on the subject.
Why do nil these armies have such
strict discipline ? The answer is easy,
because it is absolutely necessary, be because
cause because battles cannot be won without
it. Because there never ha3. been in
the history of the world a good' and
efficient army which did not have 'ex-:

efficient fighting force of which we
have any record is the army of Spar Sparta;

have been equipment, and discipline.
On thene two factors have hinged the
fate of battles. After two more years,

cannot be acquired or lost quickly. A

There would be some excuse for a
misconception of the necessity for
rigid discipline if we had never read'
any history. Take; for example, the
experience of our neighbors the Can-;
adians. In the very early davs of the

war they committed the blunder we
seem about to make. They sent troops
to Europe who associated freely with with-their
their with-their officers, who failed' to. salute, etc j
The result was exactly what could j
have been expected. Their casualty i
lists were ten times greater than

they should have been and they lost :

many battles they should have won.
After eight months of costly exper experience
ience experience they were withdrawn, taken to
camps in the rear, and were given an
intensive course of "training in mat matters
ters matters of discipline. Never since then

nave undisciplined troops been putj

on tne nrmg line. I ne Canadian
troops since they took on. military
discipline have proven they are the
equal of any soldiers in the world.
Is it true that we have not the good
judgment to profit by this bit 6f ex experience?;

Senator Overman's statement con contains
tains contains several peculiar fallacies. "First,
he would have officers associate with
privates of good families. This in
order to foster a democratic spirit It
can readily be seen that if officers
did associate with privates it would
be with that class. That '3 to say, the
richman's son and the social elite
would be picked out and favored.
Would this be in accordance with a
proper conception of a democratic
army or not? And from, anothef
angle. Suppose the captain does take
Private Bill Smith down to dinner
some night, and a week later he finds
he has a vacancy for corporal and
decides to appoint Private Smith.
What do the other privates in the
company say ? Two things: First,
that the captain plays favorites (a

deadly reputation for a company com-1

mander) ; second, that Corporal Smith
obtained his chevrons by boot-licking
the captain.

There is but one army in existence
today where the officers and men as associate
sociate associate off duty, and that, is the Rus Russian
sian Russian army. This should mean some

thing to us if we are willing to think.

The senator is also of the opinion

that strict discipline is bad because it

exists in the German army. Sixteen-,
inch mobi field guns existed in the
German army before any 'other, army
thought of them; but the Allies do

not refuse to use; them for that-Tea-

son. To call rigid discipline a "caste"

system is an ; incorrect use of i: thw
word. A. man. born in a caste dies in

the. same caste. The reverse situation

is true of the army. Any private,, with
the ability of an officer may become
an officer. Every incentive and en encouragement
couragement encouragement is given him to, qualify
himself. There, are no privates in the
ranks with more military ability than
the officers over them. .The minute

In March, 1916, the general assem

was charged with the duty, of making

a careiul and, detailed studvf of tha

organization and methods of the state
knd local governments of the comi

monwealth of Virginia, and to report

to the next general assembly in what

way the said state and" local govern

ments could be more efficiently or

ganized and administered. Mr. Le

roy Hodges, so well and favorably
known in Florida, was a member of

this commission. This commission,

hampered by insufficient funds and
hindered by the outbreak of the war,
was not able to more than commence

the work assigned to it but it made
an useful beginning by reporting on
the state government. It must be

plain to anyone that the report of

such a commission, made up of non

partisan, able and conscientious men

and acted upon faithfully and intelli

gently by the legislature, would be of
the greatest benefit. Unfortunatelv.

we are not able to recommend such a
step in Florida, as we are quite cer certain
tain certain that it would result only in the
appointment of a bunch "of politicians
whose report would be acted on by a
gan g of incompetents. Public aff airh
in Florida have sagged to a low
level, and we will have to see evidence
of the intelligent and patriotic people
of the state taking, matters more into
their own hands before we recommend
any radical measure. ".

Grandma Nelson and her married

half an hour to wind It up and see
that it started off in good fashion.
Then she made several experiments as
to how far away $he ticking could be

went: on deck and hunted up Miss
Agathy. It gave her quite a shock to
find her talking rather familiarly with
a good-looking young "man whose age
was about twenty-two. Only three
chairs away sat Mr. Burton. He was
looking very solemn. Grandma Nelson
gave the girl a sign to follow her.

straight to the young man whom? she
had been sitting beside when called,
and said to him:
"There is a clockwork bomb In
